We stayed during the Olympics in Aug 2016 at a vastly inflated price created by the tour company. This hotel is a basic 2 star. Breakfast- basic - mainly breads and cakes with scrambled eggs and a daily guest meat (chicken nuggets one day). Rooms- ours was quiet but you're in the middle of a busy district (similar to North...

It wasn't bad found a good location, place was clean. Rio was marvelous, great beaches.Rio is a place where one has to be careful walking at night, saw a couple of robberies during my visit there. The place was safe however if you choose to leave the hotel make sure to travel with someone else, especially at night.
